The ProLiant DL560 Gen8 server is ideal for environments that involve virtualisation, database management, and business processing as well as other 4P data-intensive applications, where optimisation of data centre space, performance, and costs are vital. Powered by the new high-density and cost-effective Intel® Xeon® E5-4600 processors, the ProLiant DL560 Gen8 server offers the ideal 4P, 2U form factor without compromising on performance.
The DL560 Gen8 features:
World-class performance, scalability, and expandability
Improved memory, storage, and throughput performance
- Density-optimised 4P computing in a dense 2U helps increase computing footprint by enabling consolidation of servers and repurposing valuable space, while 4S computing supports up to four cost-effective Intel Xeon E5-4600 processors (each up to eight cores and 130 watts) without system configuration restrictions.
- Up to six PCIe 3.0 expansion slots (3x16) enhances serviceability, provides improved latency, and offers a significantly improved bandwidth per I/O expansion slot (compared to G7 servers).
- 48 DDR3 DIMM sockets, for up to 1.5 TB of HP SmartMemory, and a maximum memory speed up to 1600 MHz
Enhanced user experience
- HP SmartMemory offers improved performance, quality, manageability, and efficiency while reducing downtime and energy costs, including up to 20 percent less power using low voltage registered dual in-line memory modules (RDIMMs) without impacting performance.
- HP Smart Array P420i RAID controller—with optional 512 MB flash-backed write cache (FBWC)—supports HP SmartStorage and HP SmartDrive, along with a choice of a wide section of two 2.5-inch SFF SAS and SSD drives, providing improved RAID controller performance, and drive interface and serviceability information.
- HP FlexibleLOM allows customisation of server networking today, and the ability to meet future needs without overhauling server hardware by providing a choice of networking bandwidth (between a 4x1G or 2x10G Ethernet and a 2x10G FlexFabric), technology, HP OEM vendor partners, and number of ports.
Faster, intuitive, simplified server configuration and management
- HP SmartDrive hot-plug drive carrier improves drive-status indication with an intuitive “do not remove LED” icon-based display and reduces data loss and improves serviceability.
- HP Smart Socket guide facilitates quicker and more intelligent installation or upgrade of your processor, virtually removing downtime.
- Integrated Lifecycle Automation, an industry-first feature standard across all ProLiant servers, provides embedded provisioning tools and system maintenance capabilities - removing tedious, time-consuming tasks.
- Dynamic Workload Acceleration converges storage, compute, and I/O to turbo-charge application performance, delivering smarter data protection for ever-increasing hard drive capacities.
- Automated Energy Optimisation utilises the embedded intelligence of the HP Sea of Sensors 3D across location, power utilisation, and thermal demand, enabling more reliability, better performance, and lower costs.
- HP Intelligent Provisioning—a single embedded tool built into Gen8 servers for all set-up and configuration tasks—provides the firmware, drivers and tools you need to quickly get your systems online without the need for HP disks or downloads.
- HP Active Health provides 24x7 agentless health monitoring and alerting, and 100 percent configuration change logging—helping you start problem analysis faster, using unified diagnostic tools that enable secure data transfer to HP Service and Support.
- HP Smart Update is a breakthrough system-maintenance tool with one-click simplicity that systematically updates firmware and system software across your servers and blade infrastructures.
- HP Insight Control allows you to proactively monitor your ProLiant server’s health and performance (both physical and virtual), deploy them quickly, reduce energy costs, and control your ProLiant servers from anywhere.
- HP Insight Online provides one-stop remote monitoring and support of your infrastructure.
